of people from other parts of the country and not let this stuff come up for a vote? >> what do you think the white house's assessment is of that what you just laid out? what do you expect from president obama tomorrow in terms of a balance between things he can do himself and things he would need congress to do? >> well, he is going to do as much as he can to enforce existing law and do things through executive orders. no, the gun owners don't have to fear he is not going to take guns away through executive orders. it's that fear, that paranoia being spread by the nra and others. but he is going to take executive action. but i think he is going to propose a very robust plan from everything i hear, including an assault weapons ban. that seems to be the measure that has the most difficulty. one of the things i think they're going to propose, by the way, is to make it a lot easier to collect data on gun violence, on people who die in violence. the nra has blocked even the collection of data. so we can't know what is going on. so we can't come up with the right solutions. i hope that is part

obama after the shooting. the internet conspiracy theorists say that is not emilie's sister at all, it is emilie herself. in a statement earlier today emilie's father robbie told us, "as a country we cannot let us become derailed by the preposterous claims that are being made by a tiny number of people. this time is sacred for my family and for every family affected by this horrific event. we cannot let these false claims distract us from the things that matter most to all of us." now, it's one thing for ill-informed people to take to the internet to voice their parano paranoia. there are all these kinds of people. but it's another for an associate professor at a university to do it. again, we were hoping to talk to the professor tonight. we asked him again yesterday if he'd come on tonight. today he called us back and said he couldn't come on because he teaches a class on tuesday nights. we offered to send a satellite truck to him or to pretape the interview. he he declined. alex sides wald is a political report reporter for salon.com. he's been out in front on the reporting on th
towards the country's spending limit once again, folks. you know what that means. talking about time to raise the debt ceiling, right? president obama warned he will not enter into another game of brinkmanship as he referred to it over the debt sealing with republicans. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is in fact a safe bet. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. martha: a lot of talk about the president's demeanor at that news conference yesterday. we'll get into that a little bit more coming up but for now does this really come down to an issue of raising the spending limit or defaulting on our credibility as the president has talked about. let's bring in stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on fox business network. so, stuart, you feel the way he is framing this is incorrect? >> ye
. today, president obama unveils his plan to curb gun violence in america. the issue debated all across the country, including last night on a special edition of "piers morgan tonight." take a look. >> what are you saying to me, would you need an iar-15 to protect yourself from your own government. >> let's look at that. 19 orders coming down. we have had natural disasters where police have cleared out of the cities, and people who had weapons were safe. we don't know what will happen. tonight, we might have a bright, sunny america. who is to say what will happen in the future. >> some people make your head hurt when they speak. wow. she doesn't know what executive order is. we'll speak with tammy duckworth. a democrat in illinois. just voted into congress. thank you for joining us. this debate, very heated and very angry. that woman just talking from piers morgan's show last night. you hear that not infrequently. i have second amendment rights, and the government might come to get me, some of the is beginning to sound a little nutty to me. how do you be the voice of calm, as you want t
. but it is -- it's stunning. you look at what's happening in the country. >> should kids be in a position to be mocked, maria? >> certainly i agree that limbaugh is limbaugh and no matter what president obama does, he's going to be against it. let's put that out front. i think we need to be very careful about using kids in politics and to seemingly advance a political agenda like rush limbaugh said. but let's also keep in mind that this event that happened in newtown happened to children. it's a very defining event in the collective soul and consciousness, not just of adults but of our children, carol. what parent in this country did not have to sit down with their children and i think will agrees with me on this point, to explain to them what happened. he's got kids. i've got kids. everybody with kids had to explain to them what happened. if my children then said to me, well, i would like to write president obama, whoever the president might be at the time, to tell them what i think and what i'm feeling, i would be absolutely okay with that. if the parents are okay with having their chil
posted on the white house youtube channel. >> dear president obama, i think there should be some changes in the law with guns. it's a free country, but i recommend there needs to be a limit with guns. >> and i'm ready to ask you to start gun laws. i am very sad about the children who lost their lives in connecticut, so i thought i would write to you to stop gun violence. >> mr. president, can we do something which will stop all of these terrible problems? after watching the news all day on friday, one question pops in my head and that question is, can we stop using guns? >> the obama administration has come under fire for incorporating the children into that news conference. some conservatives say the children are being used as props. >>> and this weekend scores of children, their parents, and others will descend on washington ahead of president obama's inauguration. the chairs are being placed. dress rehearsals are taking place, but if you're headed to d.c., you better bundle up because the forecast calls for flurries on inauguration day. national guardsmen from more than 25 states maki
in 2009 and president obama and the first lady went to a number of them and this time just two and while the venues are bigger, the verizon center, it's part of trying to recognize that the country has big challenges ahead and the work really begins the day after tomorrow. >> harris: carl cameron keeping an eye on it for all of us, live. thank you very much, carl. barbara walters is recovering from a bump on the head the veteran news person, or news woman i should say tripped and fell at the home of britain's ambassador to the u.s. during an inaugural party and the fall left her with a cut on her for head, she remained alert, but the friends at the party thought it was a good idea to take her to the hospital for a full examination. it's unclear when she will be released from the hospital. walters, 83, had heart surgery just a couple of years ago. new information from algeria following the hostage crisis at one of the gas plants. the military raided and seized it. and algerian forces found 25 more bodies and the bodies in such bad condition, it wasn't clear if they were hostages or terror
, a lot of folks from suburban places around the country, it's become a bit unruly on economics. and i think obama has papered over that for the last four years. but i think that's going to change here in the next few years. the first issue where i think we'll see a conversation on this is the question of entitlements. there are some folks in the democratic party who are happy to have a conversation on issues like the eligibility age for medicare. other democrats like sherrod brown, the senator from ohio, i talked to, they say hell, no, we are not going to have a conversation about that. that is core to our dna, and we're not going to move on that. >> j-mart, last time republicans had an internal debate about a lot of these issues, a lot of folks divided the party. you mention smd moderaed some m coming over to the democratic party. do you see a contentious primaries in the future for the 2014 midterms? >> well, look. i don't think you're going to see the sort of club-for-growth-style conservative on moderate attacks that you see in the gop. i think you're going to see some of that. ke
. it is their country. it also, of course, would come at the orders of president obama. what we do know is the u.s. military already has one unit on very short in the. this is the commanders and extremists force. it's at an undisclosed location, special forces that can move within four hours of getting that presidential order, specializing in hostage rescue and terrorism operations. there are a number of other units in the region. let's walk through some of them, wolf. there are about 150 marines in sigonella, italy, not very far away. they are trained for crisis intervention. there are also two teams of marines in rota, spain, also trained for anti-terrorism operations and back in the united states, the legendary and often called upon s.e.a.l. team 6, based on the east coast of the united states, they are always on the short stream. that four-hour typical notice, they could be wheels up if the order comes. but, wolf, you are right. what the military will be doing is putting some pieces into place so they are ready. so if the president says we are going to do this, they will be ready to go, wolf

obama said any confrontation with congress over the debt limit will hurt the american economy. >> shouldn't be surprising given all this talk that the american people think washington is hurting rather than helping the country at the moment. let's finish this debate. let's give our businesses and the world the certainty that our economy and reputation are still second to none. we pay our bills, we handle our business, and then we can move on because america has a lot to do. we've got to create more jobs we've got to boost the wages of those who have work. >> the president didn't mention another potential hit to the economy, higher payroll taxes that are shrinking millions of paychecks every year. jill schlessinger is editor at large for cbs' "money watch." what does this mean for the average person? people are starting to feel it, how much less money is in t in your pay sdmekcheck? >> when you look at the paycheck you'll have a bummed out reaction. $18 to $20 less if you make $50,000 or less it does matter. >> what exactly -- start us off with what is a pay
it was taking place. >> reporter: officials from the u.s. and other countries say they had no heads-up on the operation, were provided contradictory information on the raid and on the status of their citizens. the white house says president obama is receiving regular updates on the raid, that the administration is in constant contact with the government of algeria and has been clear that our first priority is the safety and security of the hostages. the u.s. defense secretary put the terrorists on notice. >> they will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, not in north africa, not anywhere. >> reporter: but the demands of the group led by mokhtar belmokhtar are growing. release of two high-profile figures held in the u.s., the so-called blind sheikh who's serving a life sentence planning terror attacks in the u.s., and a pakistani neuroscientist convicted of trying to kill americans in afghanistan. the obama administration is ruling out any deal. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> reporter: and one american who was at that site when it was attacked by

was not able to do. caller: i would ask your guest to address mr. obama's promise which drew in the young voters that he was going to be great unifier. i would contend he has deliberately set out to polarize the country and that 51% of americans voted for him but that the other 49% of americans that voted for him feel like he is sticking his tongue out at us and giving us the finger. i feel we are more polarized than we were and i see that as a promise greatly broken. guest: in fact, there is a promise to the fact that we do have the promise broken. we represented by his promise to bring both parties together to pass an agenda. as you say, there has not been success at that. there is a very robust debate about who is to blame but in terms of actions -- i have not seen him stick out his tongue or flipping the bird at anyone but i can say event this is definitely a very polarized place. that is a promise broken. host: here is a tweet - guest: i think more than ever. this is the kind of journalism we should have been practicing years ago. there is this battle of talking points and you hear t
